Level:  195  Date: 8-May-2010 Mood: God Mode

Hello guys! To tell you the truth, it has been quite a ride hasn’t it? Every day I play Castle Age for about an hour or so. And like most people, I usually take a few minutes each time – a click here, a click there, kill some monster here, fight some battles there. And yes, even though the concept itself is simple, this game is extremely addictive, which to me can be bad. As you know, I can be rather obsessive at times. When I set my heart on something, I kind of have to follow it through. Bad? Well, imagine someone thinking non-stop of silly the game 24/7. That is me.

Anyway, I am still continuing my road to get the Hero Chase. So the same thing – fighting in sieges and hoping to get enough Battle Hearts to do the alchemy for Chase.

You have been awarded with: Atlantean Map Piece! [attack: defense: ] You have been awarded with: 266 Battle Hearts!

A very quick one. I merely joined to get some more Battle Hearts. had only 129 kills which I consider very low. And I didn’t get much in terms of rewards for that. A few crappy Spartan shields and some other loot. But I got 266 Battle Hearts at the very least. That is the most important.

You have been awarded with: Great Halberd! [attack: 8 defense: 7] You have been awarded with: 1040 Battle Hearts!

Yet another disappointment. Killed 861 enemies and I got only 1040 Battle Hearts? Why? I had expected about 1800 Battle Hearts from this siege. Yet I was given only 1040. Even in my previous several sieges, I do get about double the number of Battle Hearts per kill. I am guessing that as you gain in Battle Rank, the number of Battle Hearts you received is reduced as well? The reason is Battle Hearts are awarded when you defeat someone higher in Battle Rank than you? That means that is will only get harder to achieve. Thank the gods I am nearly there.

Anyway, as usual, the loot is pathetic.


The Death Gates Rewards with 166 kills:

[attack: 20 defense: 24] You have been awarded with: Demonic Armor! [attack: 5 defense: 8] You have been awarded with: 333 Battle Hearts!

Yet another quick one. Joined to get some Battle Hearts seeing that the siege was almost complete. And I got 333 Battle Hearts! Now this is a bit confusing. My previous siege, I got 1040 Battle Hearts for 861 kills. This time however, I was rewarded with 333 Battle Hearts for 166 kills. So my previous theory about lower Battle Hearts reward when getting higher in Battle Rank seem to be wrong, does it not? It could mean that at certain amount of kills, you will get lesser Battle Hearts per kill? Need to do a little more experiment on this to understand how it works. I guess this is what makes the game as interesting – you will not easily understand what goes on in the minds of the developers when they design this game. And yes, still no favour points from all these sieges. Not a single one, my friends!

Moving on, I have received another Sword of the Faithless, which means that I am still missing only the Soul Eater (yes, the disgusting looking arm thingy). Why is it called the Soul Eater in the first place?

Yes, Cartigan is going to join my army soon! And yes, it has been a very long ride to get Cartigan as well. See you at the next update. Hopefully, I will have some good news for you. Ciao!
